Mechanical engineers are active in all engineering functions of a product including creative design, research and development, production and management. Energy, airplanes, automobiles, space vehicles, machinery, earth-moving equipment and medical hardware are but a few examples of the infinite number of products that mechanical engineers have produced through their use of the basic laws of physical sciences.

Upon successful completion, the Associate in Science Degree in Mechanical Engineering is awarded.

Program Notes


Students are advised to check transfer requirements at four year institutions. Some institutions require 2 (two) Chemistry courses for specific engineering programs. CH 110  and CH 120  sequence is recommended in such cases.

This program qualifies as an Alternative Transfer Agreement (MassTransfer) with select public institutions in Massachusetts. For more information, visit www.mass.edu/masstransfer.

Competency in mathematics is a MassBay graduation requirement. Prior to graduation, students must demonstrate competency at 100-level math. This may be accomplished by an appropriate placement test score or completion of any 100-level mathematics course or higher, except mathematics courses with a MAC prefix.
